This manual explains step by step how to successfully install Defenx Network Security Suite, in one server and multiple endpoints.

Requirements

Before installation, follow the steps below.

File sharing

Control Panel\Network and Internet Network and Sharing Center \ Advanced sharing settings. Check if the activation of file sharing is enabled.

Register Files

From Start menu, chose to execute the application.

Type RegEdit and click ok, it should open an windows System RegisterEditor

Follow the path under the Editor RegisterHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\SystemCheck if the register key LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy exists. In case does not exist, as in the example below, you should create it.

In Edit > New > value DWORD (32 bit)

Name it as: LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy

Then right click over the key created and select Modify

Set a value of 1 and then click OK

The first register key is complete.

Second Register Key
